    Well, My Riding days are at a stand still.

    I tore the ACL in my right knee and Doc says I will be out for 2 to 3 months as far as bikes go, but I will be out the entire ski season. This sucks!!!!
    If you can't, then you won't
    If you won't, then you fail.
    If you can, then you will
    If you will, then success is inevitable.

    It's got to be really embarrassing if he's reluctant to give the story. Probably involved hookers, a pony and tapes of Joe McCarthy speeches. It's how these things usually happen.

    No, it wasn't that bad. I pulled my right foot out of my pedal and I was pedaling like a mad man. I got up around 20 MPH when it happened. I fipped 3 times with my bike then slid on my right knee for 15 feet. Got some real good road rash, thought I might have brokken my knee cao, and of sourse tore my ACL. All in all it was as bad as I thought it was when I wrecked. I still had 2 miles left to go to get to the house. By the time I got there I was leaving a steady blood trail down the road. Sorry no pony or anything like that.

    OUCH!

    I tore my left ACL playing volleyball in 1985, that's the $16,000 knee

    Luck with the surgery and rehab.

    Jeff, still fat
